Geography

Understanding the Science

Once Wheal Busy had visited the Geothermal Plant, Suzy (a geologist) visited to play a game with the children so they could better understand the science that is used to generate energy from the earth. It was a fun game that helped everyone to understand what they had seen in the morning. 

The Geothermal project at United Downs

Last Thursday Wheal Busy visited the Geothermal project at United Downs to find out how they are going to generate electricity from the heat that comes from the earth. They saw some enormous pieces of machinery. Can you work out what some of these pictures show? Can you estimate how deep into the ground they have drilled?

Sending Letters to Bristol

Today Wheal Harmony and Wheal Unity are writing letters to another year 1 class in Bristol! They are very excited to write their letters. This was a message from the year 1 teacher at Victoria Park Primary School in Bristol.

A Parcel from Florida

The children in Mrs Winnan’s literacy group were very excited to receive a parcel in the post which had travelled over 4,000 miles from Florida to reach them!! Inside was a challenge to learn about a contrasting continent through poetry. Mrs Winnan is extremely proud of their reading progress and delighted to hear such superb deeper thinking circulating the room. Well done everyone! They are looking forward to opening the mystery parcel at the end of their topic! 

The 7 Continents of the World

Wheal Harmony have been learning about the 7 continents of the world. Did you know that the largest continent in the world is Asia? Did you know the smallest continent in the world is Oceania? Wow! Ask your child to see if they can name all 7 continents

Finger Prints Across the World

Wheal Harmony have created a world masterpiece! Each child had a part of the world and they used their fingerprints to paint each piece. This is their artwork!
